Is there any restrictions on the length of a path?
I have seen an article it suggests that test scripts should be placed as close to the root directory of the drive as possible, because “Both WinRunner and TestDirector place restrictions on the length of a path. If either a direct pathname or an UNC path is decoded to grater than 60 characters, then access will fail.”
Can anyone let me know whether the above statement is still true?

A UNC path is a way to reference a Network Drive without mapping that drive to a drive letter.
